Ahmadis Are Not Pure

An excerpt of a summary of how Ahmadis lived and died in Pakistan during last year:

On July 1, 2009 Mr Shahbaz Sharif, the Chief Minister of the Punjab province, presided over a meeting of high ranking clerics on the issue of terrorism. At the end of the conference a Declaration was issued and in its clause 2 the conference declared that “Anyone who is guilty, directly or indirectly, openly or by implication, of even minor insolence to the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is an infidel (Kafir), apostate (Murtad) and must be put to death (Wajib-ul-Qatl).” They linked this statement in the text to the ‘end of prophethood’. The declaration was given wide publicity through an advertisement campaign in the vernacular press.

Ahmadis are considered an Islamic sect by some and not-Muslims by most. These clerics, however, want them to be declared as ex-Muslims -- which merits death under Islamic law.
